Double Your SNAP Dollars for Healthy Food

If you are a SNAP (food stamp) recipient, you may be able to get an extra $20 per market day of fresh fruits and vegetables for every $20 in SNAP benefits you spend.  This program was started at the East Lake and Norwood Farmers’ Markets in 2014 and continues in 2015.  Both markets are open Saturday mornings.  The East Lake market also does Double Bucks on its mobile market.  Click here to see a list of up-to-date mobile market stops for :   http://www.eastlakemarket.org/
